was it a flat top before you made the change? I think you gotta get the taller or maybe shorter post. I think it will be a shorter post for the front sight.

It was a flatop. i just filed down the post im gonna try that but the post is sticking up just a little bit and it looks funny but if it works its going to have to look funny. What posts are used in the colt 9mm? Thanks MGP

I think you need to find a A2 post, the Flattop post are taller than the post on A2 uppers, dont hold me to that but am positive.

Ok i filed down the frt site post a little bit shorter than the factory short post and it worked perfect the only problem was the post was barely visable so to correct this problem a took the frt sight base and milled .100 off and now we have perfect sight picture

Dang, sounds identical to the problem I had with my RRA 9mm upper. I sent mine back to RRA, and they wound up installing a new barrel. Fixed the problem. I'm using an ARMS 40 rear sight.

Mine is a flattop. It appears that at some point in its life, the barrel was threaded for a flash hider. Bad news was, it was threaded 1/2x28 (AR15 dimensions). My thought is the crown got messed up, as it is very thin at the muzzle. I could be wrong, though.

MGP, where/what did you mill? The flat on top of the FSB (where it says "UP")?

Cool, Thanks. I had thought about trying that with my [now] spare barrel ass'y. I still might, 'cause you can never have too many AR parts lying around
